*Merry and Bright*

I bought the set called Quick Cards from the Holiday Mini (page 8) and was so excited waiting for it... and then it arrived and I realized that it was three large stamps instead of 6 smaller coordinating stamps. I was so disappointed. I have tried a few times to use this set with no luck at all.

Until yesterday....

That's when I came up with this card. I inked only the the ornament on the Christmas stamp with Cranberry Crisp and stamped it on a piece of Whisper White cardstock. I then centred it in my Giga Scalloped Circle Punch. I sponged Buckaroo Blue ink around the edges and added dots of white Liquid Pearls in each of the scallops. I set that aside to dry. I cut a piece of Cranberry Crisp to 4"X5 1/4" and stamped it with the On The Spot in Whisper What ink and heat set it to dry it. I wrapped a piece of True Thyme stitched ribbon around the Cranberry Crisp piece and attached it with double sided tape to my True Thyme Card. I put the scalloped circle on the front and voila!

I'm still not sold on this set, but at least I've found one use for it! I sure would have liked it more if it had been 6 stamps. I guess it pays to read the fine print in the catalogue!
